Roller Coaster Saves Life Of Brain Tumour Patient

Postby Simba » Mon Jun 11, 2012 10:27 am

A student who was hours from death when she was diagnosed with a huge brain tumour has stunned doctors by making an incredible recovery.
Emma Bassett was diagnosed with a deadly brain tumour seven years ago and it was only a roller coaster ride that means she is still alive today.
It reversed her prognosis after the vigorous ride re-distributed the fluid that had been causing a dangerous pressure on her skull.

Emma Bassett said "They showed me a scan of my brain and the tumour was enormous. I told them I'd been to Thorpe Park and on all the roller coasters with my friends, and they said that had saved my life.

Now that is believable! All the g-forces would redistrubute the fluids around by pushing them around. The airtime would help as well.

They can also cure headaches, as I've had a headache cleared by being on a rollercoaster.
